Answering the Call to Build Equitable Housing Part II: Closing the Racial Wealth Gap Through Homeownership

Lunchtime Forum


A street of single family homes.

Homeownership is an important tool for building intergenerational wealth, but is also unequally distributed, a result of systemic racism that has been reinforced across generations. In the second installment of our multi-part series examining the lasting impacts of property ownership on families, neighborhoods and cities, Joaquín Torres, San Francisco's Assessor Recorder, will explore the relationship between homeownership and wealth disparity and how we can level the playing field for future generations. Join us to learn how housing markets have excluded families of color from home ownership and what we can do to change that.
